A Trump judge seized control of ICE, and the Supreme Court will decide whether to stop him

for Vox looks at the issues before the Supreme Court in United States v. Texas. which will be argued tomorrow. Millhiser characterizes the district court's ruling enjoining the implementation of the Biden administration's immigration enforcement priorities as "lawless" and an "embarrassment."  He writes:

"In July, a Trump appointee to a federal court in Texas effectively seized control of parts of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the federal agency that enforces immigration laws within US borders. Although Judge Drew Tipton’s opinion in United States v. Texas contains a simply astonishing array of legal and factual errors, the Supreme Court has thus far tolerated Tipton’s overreach and permitted his order to remain in effect.

Nearly five months later, the Supreme Court will give the Texas case a full hearing on Tuesday. And there’s a good chance that even this Court, where Republican appointees control two-thirds of the seats, will reverse Tipton’s decision — his opinion is that bad."
